Evangelist Beth Moore Helps Harvey Victims: ‘I Want to Meet the Next Need’

By Nancy Flory Published on September 6, 2017

“We’re not strangers to flooding.We’re not even strangers to hurricanes,” Bible teacher Beth Moore told Fox News’ Martha McCallum last week. When someone said “unprecedented flooding,” she added, “every single person sat up straight and our hearts just dropped.”

Moore and her Houston-based Living Proof Ministries are helping cleanup Houston after the storm that kept “on going and going and going.” She spoke on what it means to be a Houstonian and believer in the storm’s wake. Moore is a long-time friend of LIFE Outreach, and former host of LIFE Today’s “Wednesdays in the Word.”

Just Meet Needs

Moore said she wanted to simply meet needs. “I think the way I want to help is what everyone wants to do,” said Moore. “That’s just the next thing — meet the next need.” They don’t need people to try to be heroes. It’s a long haul of a job. “So it’s just what is the next thing you can do?”

Moore said that she helped set up a distribution center for their relief volunteers and went grocery shopping. She said she would do “whatever it takes.”

She’s asking people to pray “that the trauma would not just stay on us and cause us to become a people just with dread and fear all over us. That we would be so victorious through this. Please just pray that for us.”

Seeing the people come together and encourage one another is incredibly important, said Moore. “One of the things I keep saying to people is ‘Right now, today, in Houston, Texas and areas around us, the hands of Jesus have wet vacs and saws in them and the feet of Jesus are wearing rubber boots and walking deep water.'”
